    Software Subscription Service for DTS-70 By: Eric IsacsonlAMD

    A Software Subscription Service is now available for the 9571A Test Station and TESTAID-Ill (910758). It is available under the terms of the standard HP Customer Maintenance Agreement (service contract). Price is $90.00 per month for systems using 7905A disc memories, for example. Con- tract forms and details will be in the hands of HP Customer Engineers by late June.

    The first DTS-70 software update under the Software Sub- scription Service is now available. It provides present users with the option 004 software now being shipped on new systems. As well as fixing various "bugs" it allows either RTE-II or Ill to be used. DTS-70's using it may now include as many as 6 terminals, 21 MX-E, 21MX or 2100 computers, and user-defined soft kevs on the 2645 terminal. ,

    New DTS-70 Sales Literature By: Eric IsacsonlAMD

    Two new pieces of DTS-70 literature are now available in bulk: a Configuring Guide, and HP 9571A Specifications. The Configuring Guide has been revised to include the op- tion 003 and 004 software, microcode storage requirements, HP 1000 controllers (in both 7905A and 7900A configura- tions), software and hardware maintenance services, site preparation information, and a configuration checklist.

    Bulk quantities are being shipped on June 16. Individual copies are being sent to DTS-70 sales personnel earlier. The new literature supercedes the old Ordering Information and Specifications, effective immediately.

    Line Printers From HP vs. Dataproducts Corp. By: Steve RichardsonIBOISE

    Occasionally customers feel they want to purchase their printers directly from our vendor, Dataproducts. This ap- pears on the surface as a simple way for the customer to save some money, but can lead to a lot of problems and customer dissatisfaction.

    HP does not purchase a standard Dataproducts printer. We purchase a special long-line Interface (so your customer can locate his printer up to 1000 feet from the CPU); we also have a 12 channel VFU (for more customer flexibility), and even our connector is different.

    What this boils down to is that i f your customer gets his print- er from Dataproducts, he may have lots of hassles getting it to work.

    So, sell a single-vendor solution. A system that HP puts together, guarantees to work, provides system software to support, and backs with service. Your customer will be happier in the long run!

    Standard HP Character Sets: The Difference can be Important! By: Steve RichardsonIBOlSE

    There are differences between the standard 64 character set and the standard 96 character set in HP drum prlnters (2613A, 2617A, and 2618A).

    The most notable difference is the fact that they have different font styles. This means the characters actually look different. It can be very important to point out this d~fference to your customers when they are making their prlnter decision, especially the customer who is sensitive to prlnt style.

    Of course, there are also optlonal 64 or 96-character OCR-B font character sets These are other alternat~ves for your customer to conslder when chooslng his pr~nter

    A second difference between 64 and 96-character sets 1s the underscore character. The 64-character drum has a "true" underscore which strikes below other characters The underscore on the 96 character set IS a "base line" under- score and actually strikes the bottom of other characters. (Th~s is dependent on the 96-character printer and cannot be avoided.)

    The prlnter output can be a key determinant In the sale or a customer's satisfaction after the sale Please review the dif- ferent character sets with your customer. If you need print samples, we'll be glad to send them

    Remember too that ~f your customer wants something that our standard character sets don't offer, please contact us about a spec~al We can often get your customer exactly what he wants at a relatively low addltlonal cost
